RE[2]: reality check

"Have you ever looked at the dashboard of a fighter plane? It's not simple and it's not intuitive. But once you learn it it's efficient. Ultimately, that's the most important thing about a UI: how efficient will it be once I've gone past the learning curve and use it daily. The rest is not that important."

again, missing thr point. how many untrained average users are going to use the UI on the dashboard of a fighter plane?

i simply can't believe that you've ever studied UI design if you believe that complex functionality equates to a complex interface. you should have been taught that the whole point is to simplify the interface as much as possible no matter how much functionality is present.
